CAT vs BITSAT

Some important statistics

1) BITSAT online exam was started 4 years back. CAT online exam has started just now
2) The BITSAT exam spanned for more than 50 days with 3 batches a day. The CAT exam was "supposed" to span over 10 days, with 2 exams everyday.
3) The no of students taking BITSAT is around 2 lakhs, CAT is taken by 2.5 lakhs
4) BITSAT is managed by the BITS Pilani, Institute themselves. CAT paid a huge amount of fees to PROMETRIC.
5) BITSAT continues successfully for 4 years. CAT failed on "First day, First Show", continuing the same on the second day too.
If anybody wants to add more point ( pro BITS) then please comment.

Ninja Awesome Game


Video Games are part and parcel of our lives. There are some which require high config processors and stuff , and on the other hand there are some which are simple and addictive in their own way.

One is Monkey Kick Off. I remember waking up 1 full night in order to beat my friends score. Try them out for yourself




Play Monkey Kick Off


Play Monkey Lander




But my favourite has been Ninja. I can guarantee that you will fall in love with the game as soon as you lay hands on it. It has that sort of an addiction, that can make you forget everything, and best of all, you dont have anybdy else to compete with. It is single player game, but requires eye and keyboard sync of the utmost level.
The sceen is simple, the rules are simple. You just have to manoeuvre your "ninja" through a 2D screen which is filled with obstacles, but it is the obstacles that will win your heart away.
-> a following missile
-> a mario like tortoise slider
-> laser bot
-> antenna bots
-> cannons

You just have to play to love it. It is made in Flash and you have to respect the programming expertise of the designer. Looks like he has used Action Script. Well we need not worry about these silly things , just play the gmae and get immersed in it.

Yeah it can act as a stress buster too. And please please play it on a proper keyboard, dont spoil your laptop keys.

World Slipping out of their paws and our hands ....

Yesterday I watched the BBC Earth 2009 Documentary. You know, sometimes I feel how selfish I am. Consider this. I see the documentary, I feel bad about the state of the planet and the species living in it ( both plants and animals), I make a resolve to make a change , I adopt a few restrictions and constraints in my life, goes on for a fortnight or so, and then it all vanishes. You are back to the messed up, unncessarily complicated money obsessed life of yours.
So I have thought that instead of making false resolutions, one can do simple thing. Watch 2 or 3 documentaries like this per month. We generally scavenge for movies and music videos. Why shouldn't we watch this for a change.
The world has so many wonders in store for us, if we dont care for it at least we should see it and acknowledge the beauty of it. Once you see it, you will never feel like doing any anti-earth activity.
The beauty of the planet can be best understood by studying the life of its inhabitants. This file tells about the most challenging migrations taken by some animals every year. The amount they travel in a year, we might not do that even in our lifetime. Please be amazed by the facts

Amazing Earth

Below is a nice video from the same documentary. I will be uploading more soon.

Please read news about the climate change.


The video below is about a species of birds who scale the great Himalayan mountains of the heights 7000m twice every year.
